Untold Stories in Architecture – The Gorbals

Nearly 30 years and 15 projects later, we are going to share the stories behind the buildings we’ve delivered since 1993 in this fascinating part of our city.

Starting in Glasgow Green, our tour will explore the projects that we’ve delivered following the clearance of the iconic Gorbals high-rise tower blocks.

On our tour we will journey past some of the key cultural & civic spaces and will explore the varied housing. The tour will culminate at the recently completed former Linen Bank building at 166 Gorbals Street.

We look forward to sharing these stories with you.

We will be using a fantastic app called Guidigo to present our tours. Guidigo is free to download and makes exploring the city easy and fun!
